This may or may not be the right one:

Qld birth 1872/C01138 Reeves William George - William - Harriett Lloyd

The Anglican Board of Missions in 1894 sent two men, a carpenter and a stonemason, to assist Gribble at Yarrabah. The stonemason, William Reeves, was a reliable man and an accomplished, self-taught musician, with seven years experience as Superintendent of Wagga Wagga Sunday School.
In January 1906, a team of Yarrabah workers braved the cyclone to tie ropes over his house to protect the bedridden Reeves, but he died three weeks later on 29 January 1906.
Marriage 12 Jun 1903/C0281 Reeves William George - Gribble Ethel Marian

Death 29 Jan 1906/C0458 Reeves William George - John Reeves - Elizabeth -

The date of death is correct but I have no idea how reliable the info is re his parents.
